NRS Urethane Rafts

I recieved my NRS catalog in the mail yesterday and looking through it looks like they now have some urethane rafts ( NRS Home - Boats & Inflatables - Rafts - Revolution Rafts ). Anyone have any beta on these? looks like a similar product to their bandit line of kayaks, but with a heavier weight material...discuss

Urethane is a great fabric, I'm curious about the rafts. The pricing is also competitive.

Hypalon(sulfonated neoprene) hope I spelled that right, is out of production by Dupont. NRS is having to trade up.

From what I understand hypalon production is quite toxic. In the mid-90's another raft manufacturer told me that it's production was going to be outlawed in the US. So they switched to a urethane coated neoprene.

I noticed the warranties were only 3 years.

This was discussed here a while back, and people mentioned many different manufacturer's and speculated DuPont has quit since the patent is up and others can make it.
